Sniper Elite 4 Is Headed To The Nintendo Switch

This week, U.K. developer Rebellion revealed that they would be bringing the 2017 action title Sniper Elite 4 to the Nintendo Switch. The game did really ell for itself when it was released over three and a half years ago, as fans of the series loved the new innovations and, of course, kill cams that come with the series. The game will be released sometime during the 2020 holiday season, but for now, you can read more about it below and check out the reveal trailer to see how it looks on a Switch.
